What's The Frank Show About

Publisher Summary

This hilarious, offbeat picture book from the creator of Marshall Armstrong Is New to Our School reveals that there is more to the older generation than meets the eye. Grandpa Frank doesn’t have any interesting hobbies, unless you count complaining about how everything was better in the old days. He doesn’t speak Italian like Paolo’s mom, or play the drums like Tom’s uncle. He’s just a grandpa. So when the young narrator of this story is forced to bring Frank to school for show-and-tell, he’s sure it’s going to be a disaster. But Frank has a trick—make that a tattoo—up his sleeve! And a story to go with it. After all, the longer you’ve been around, the more time you’ve had for wild adventures.

This is one of my favorite grandparent books! It tells the story of a little boy who has to talk about his grandfather for one full minute during a show-and-tell and is increasingly nervous and embarrassed about it because he believes his grandfather isn’t nearly as interesting as any other family member. When his grandfather saves the day for him, we all learn a little something about how amazing his grandpa is, and might just be inspired to learn a little more about our own grandparents! The illustrations are marvelously expressive and add a lot to the story too!

This book does a fantastic job of demonstrating how neat and interesting our grandparents or ancestors can be if we take the chance to get to know them. At first, Tom didn’t think there was anything cool to share about his grandpa—he was JUST a grandpa, after all. But when his grandfather starts talking, he’s amazed at all that he learns and how neat is grandpa is! The detailed illustrations are fun and different, though I didn’t love the page in the beginning of the book with some scarier looking figures.
